For OpenCSW we have one T5220 with a T2 CPU and one M3000 with a SPARC64 CPU in place.
This looks a bit tiny for your requirements now that I think of it.

We have an additional M3000 with a SPARC64-VII CPU available which
can run Solaris 10 or Solaris 11. Also we have some unused T5220 with T2 CPUs.
I can offer you a dedicated usage for these machines and can also do setup and
patching as needed. We are connected with a 100 MBit symmetrical line and static IP.

Best regards
